4.Social Psychology Ministry Application.
a.Purpose: An important part of working with people is understanding the internal responses that are influenced by external psychological factors, both in yourself and others. Therefore, it is important to adjust the environment of a person to help them cope well and become the best that they can be. For this assignment, the student will take the following scenario and analyze it from the perspectives of social psychology, health and stress, and biblical truth. The student will express self understanding and demonstrate this understanding by coming up with a clear plan to use the social psychology principles to work through this situation presented with clear attention to caring for yourself and others.
b.The Scenario: You are the lead pastor of a church. The church has experienced significant growth over the last few years and so the church leadership has chosen to start a building project. You are about six months into the project and difficulties have started to arise. It started within the leadership team as they could not agree on what the add-on structure should look like. The team has split right down the middle and meetings include more conflict than planning. This has leaked into the church body and most recently, a specific group of people in the church have heard about this and started expressing a lack of confidence in your leadership because of the conflict. Even people that you trusted seem to be against you. It feels like this movement is gaining momentum. Use the principles from weeks 9 and 10 to understand what may be going on inside you and others, to come up with a plan that will help to pull the team and the church back together. Your choices must integrate biblical truth with sound psychological science.
